I believe it's a shadow of ewe, thrown whilst ewe try to break the record for 'longest drainpipe trousers worn whilst standing on stilts' record!

Am I right?  :D

Two things can be determined:

*That you are wearing slilts.

*That you have moved on from photographing the cats.

Somebody's been pulling your leg. Alas, when you said "Pull the other one", they did.

Me thinks perhaps you had an almighty powerful torch (US = flashlight).

From the very long shadow and the warm hue given to the concrete I can deduce the photo was taken at close to sunrise or sunset, I'd say about ten past six in the morning.

EXIF metadata helped determine that it was sunrise rather than sunset ...



I could have guessed it was a phone camera from the resolution, without looking at the metadata.
